Huge bbpress problem! Bad wordpress integration!
So my bbpress is broken, and I don’t know how to fix it.

2) Is there some code I need to remove from my wordpress installation?
3) How do I re-integrate my bbpress with wordpress so that they share the same database? I had it working splendidly until I changed my WordPress domain name.
